OVD 4 IBM provides security control to non-mainframe-based applications using standard LDAPv3 protocol in a rapid and quick start approach without making any changes to existing systems or applications.

SMAC- Industry-leading organizations around the world rely on BIAS’ Secure Messaging and Collaboration (SMAC) application to protect intellectual property and foster secure collaboration. Responding to the internal and external threats to sensitive information shared via email, BIAS developed SMAC, an inexpensive and flexible solution that integrates seamlessly into nearly any environment.
